Look at what we have here! Eric from @teaandsawdust is coming in this summer to help me get stuff done in the shop. Often we FIMsters work well together. Especially since I don’t micro manage. Side note, FIMster is otherwise know as @thefurnitureinstituteofma graduate/student.
Boy this seat was a pain in the you know what. Glad it’s about done.
After a meeting with this guy @riwoodworker Ken Alger I’ve come to realize this man is no joke. Boy do I have a lot of business paper work to do! Many thanks to @rjtboston for the set up and @malloyconstruction for sharing insight and laughter!
Often I get asked how can someone become faster. My response is to always work like your boss is watching over shoulder. Another tip is to not feed one board into the planer, walk around to the out feed side, grab the board, walk back, grab the next board and start the process all over again. Instead straddle the side of the planer and feed the boards from the left and grab from the right. This saves more time than many think. Especially if their is a lot of parts.
The 1915 oak dining table extension project is in full swing. Replicating the base column that is on the left in the image. I will need to make two 18 inch wide leafs as well.
Today I made some progress on this set of doors. The other set of doors on the same building will be started next week. I had to stop sanding for today because of the tingling sensation in the hands. On a side note, I find it entertaining how many contractors that work in these surrounding buildings just keep asking me about the company I work for. Each and every time I tell them I work for myself. And each and every time they are surprised that got the door contract. Really I’m blessed to know somebody in the field and blessed to have the skill.
When you take reclaimed parts and turn it into a door!
Blessed to be able to work on beautiful items and in beautiful homes. Here is an image of another set of 🚪doors that I have been blessed to work on. Being able to work on entry doors started here on IG with the help and trust from @rjtboston. I was able to take his client’s doors and document them here on Social media. That one opportunity opened up many other doors. But what is amazing is that I met Ryaan in a IG meetup and we just happen to cross paths. Who knew that meeting craftspeople like him and many others would change my work flow. Many thanks to you all. Now let’s get back to making these doors beautiful again.
